Bonine for the first three days will fix the seasickness. Chewable tablets without any side effects. Available over the counter at CVS and most pharmacies.
Much cheaper than a Shannon 50 which won't change anything. I got seasick occasionally on my Hunter
450 during the first few days, and I occasionally take a Bonine during the first few days on our Oyster
which is much more stable if I need to do some gross stuff like going up the mast
. The boat doesn't make much difference regarding seasickness. A 40ft catamaran
will offer more stability than any monohull
if that's what you're after.
